Open Day – Sunday 3rd March, 2019

We will be opening our gates from 10am until 1pm on the first Sunday of each month in 2019 for anyone in the community who would like to come along and see what we do, tour the community garden, and get involved with activities on the day.

So, if you are unable to come down on our usual opening days of Monday and Thursday, why not call in, dressed to garden, and get involved with our regular garden activities whilst learning how to grow food organically?  Activities may include everything from sowing seed, transplanting seedlings, worm farm management, watering, making compost, pruning, harvesting, mulching garden beds and weeding.

We also do quite a bit of chatting and information sharing during the activities.

This month, Jo Dodd of Quarter Acre Farm in Mittagong has kindly offered to give us a talk on “Edible Flowers – Which Ones and How to Use in the Kitchen.”

Simple morning tea provided. Don’t forget your gloves, hat and suitable footwear!!

ALL WELCOME!

Garden Open Sunday this weekend

Hi All,

Just a reminder to our members and friends that the Moss Vale Community Garden will be open this Sunday (December 2nd) from 10.00 am to 1.00pm.

A little bit of rain won’t deter us!

There will be

  • a demonstration on worm farming techniques,
  • a mini talk on Eco wrap uses,
  • and methods used to make them at home.

We will also be doing some transplanting into our gardens and possibly some pricking out of seedlings into punnets.

If we get time and the weather is kind, we may build a compost bay from pallets!!

If you want to know what on earth is a bokashi kit, then come down to the gardens and find out.

Seedlings, plants, jams and beeswax ecowraps will be available to purchase on the day.

All welcome!   😃
